Step inside history’s most daring conspiracy

London, 1605. A city divided. The fuse of rebellion is lit. The peace of the nation balances on a knife edge...

Step into a world where spies and informants hide in every shadow.

Your mission is to go undercover and unmask the mysterious figures behind history’s most infamous plot. But when you’re surrounded by ‘traitors’ who can you trust?

The Gunpowder Plot is a thrilling new immersive experience which takes place in a purpose-designed immersive theatre space in Tower Vaults, at the UNESCO World Heritage Tower of London

The vaults sit beneath the infamous Tower Hill site where much of the prelude to the Gunpowder Plot took place before Guy Fawkes’ torture and eventual death.

Experience history like never before

Your five senses will ignite as you make a dangerous attempt to escape the Tower, uncover a secret safehouse, and make the daring journey along the Thames towards the Houses of Parliament. You’re not just witnessing history, you are part of it.

Creative Director Hannah Price says, “Everything we are working on is to make this dark and superbly rich world come to life, and this experience utterly unforgettable.”

You’re thrown into the world the plotters inhabited, immersed in an unforgettable, fully 360 environment. Using a combination of live theatre and the latest digital technology you will journey back in time and experience the deception first hand, but will you stop the plot?

The Gunpowder Plot writer Danny Robins says,“It’s like somebody made a brilliant movie version of The Gunpowder Plot and it came to life around you and exploded in your face with bits of Jacobean London flying at you.”

Brilliant experience for both adults and kids. Great way to learn history...

Rupananda via Reviews.io on The Gunpowder Plot Experience

Wowsers! An incredibly powerful, enjoyable experience, which I don't think could be bettered. All the cast devoted maximum depth to their characters. The set designers, and VR artists, also merit high praise.

Laurence via Reviews.io on The Gunpowder Plot Experience

This is a 'must see' attraction. I loved every second. The characters were believable, the 'set' authentic and the VR was out of this world. I was totally transported. The nearest thing you can get to time travel.

Great fun and really well done. Loved the VR bits and Tom Felton. Very entertaining and would thoroughly recommend

Heather via Reviews.io on The Gunpowder Plot Experience

I didn't know what to expect as I've never done a VR immersive experience before. This was an excellent show. The live actors were brilliant, and made you feel like you'd really gone back in time. The VR was also fantastic - the scenery was stunning and the zip wire was great fun. I've already booked my next immersive VR experience. It's such fun and the whole group gets to join in with the action.

Alison via Reviews.io on The Gunpowder Plot Experience

We didn't know what to expect but weren't disappointed. We loved it. It would be a good history trip for school age children too

Lorraine via Reviews.io on The Gunpowder Plot Experience

A great way to learn about the Gunpowder Plot. Very informative and fun to get 'involved' in the 'plot'. Highly recommend to others visiting or living in or near London. Especially if you are a history lover like me.

Cerah via Reviews.io on The Gunpowder Plot Experience

We had a great time at The Gunpowder Plot experience, the mix of live actors and VR was thrilling and the way they interacted with the group was brilliant. We also had a meal and drink included with our ticket and the food was hot, fresh and very tasty. Every staff member we interacted with was friendly and helpful. We would recommend this amazing experience to all our family and friends

Clare via Reviews.io on The Gunpowder Plot Experience

An amazing experience - like nothing I have experienced before. Each 'Actor'/'reenactor' absolutely brilliant in their own right. I would highly recommend this to any history lover, theatre lover.

Jane via Reviews.io on The Gunpowder Plot Experience

Fantastic immersive experience, actors were amazing and we all felt like we had truly gone back in time.

Clare via Reviews.io on The Gunpowder Plot Experience

An incredible experience. The combination of actors, set design and VR makes this truly immersive, building up the tension and getting the audience involved in the storyline. It sets the bar for what an immersive show should feel like, highly recommended
